BSN Summer Fast Track

BSN Summer Fast Track

The BSN Summer Fast Track Program is specifically for students who are enrolled in a regionally accredited Associate’s Degree in Nursing (ADN) Program in California. BSN Summer Fast Track courses are offered in the summer term (June 8th to August 22nd) and students may begin taking courses once they have completed at least one semester of their ADN program. BSN Summer Fast Track students are not formally accepted to CSUDH, but attend classes through Extended Education Special Sessions. This does not guarantee admission to the RN-BSN Program. 

Once students begin the BSN Summer Fast Track Program they are enrolled in a cohort, intended to stay together, until they apply and are accepted into the RN-BSN Program. All classes are online using the Blackboard Learning Management System except Health Assessment which requires 2 days on campus and will not be until the second summer. There is a prescribed curriculum and at this time students are only allowed to take 2 classes per summer. Tuition will be offered at a reduced rate ($270/unit). Once formally admitted into the RN-BSN Program, students can finish their degrees in as little as two semesters.* 

Beginning March 1, 2020 the application to the BSN Summer Fast Track program will open. Students must also provide an unofficial transcript showing completion of at least one semester of their ADN program before starting the BSN Summer Fast Track program. Students must also sign-up for an online orientation if this is their first Summer program with the School of Nursing at CSUDH.
